Bamboo lance

The Bamboo lance (AKA Bamboo spear, formerly Bamboo pole) is a simple length of cut bamboo. It is cheap, but not very powerful.


Dragon Quest

In Dragon Quest, the Bamboo Pole can be bought at Tantegel/Brecconary and Cantlin/Mercado for 10 G and gives +2 attack power to the user. Due to text restrictions in the Gameboy Color remake of Dragon Quest, Bamboo pole was renamed to Bamboo with a picture of a pole besides it.
